A pontoon on Aylmer Lake

In this picture, we see a large two-story pontoon — possibly the floating cottage of the Smith family. The first floor is closed and the second floor is partially open. The rear two thirds of the pontoon consists of a gallery topped by a roof. The front part of the second floor is partially closed. Some people can be seen there. At the front, a small bridge. A rowboat is moored along the pontoon; it is covered on almost all its length by a roof.

Brompton Pulp and Paper Co. Inc. office in Garthby

This is a picture of the Brompton Pulp and Paper office in Garthby (now Beaulac-Garthby). The building is on one level and relatively small. The walls are covered with wooden slats. The soffit is decorated with two rows of small vertical elements called "dentils". The upper corners where the walls meet are decorated with "triglyphs" and "drops" at their base. The façade has a gallery whose roof covers the entire width of the building. The gallery opens on the left and on the right. The roof of the gallery is supported by four columns equally distributed from left to right. The two columns at the left and right ends are square and topped with a simple abacus. The two columns in the center are round and curved, the lower part being more domed than the upper part; they are surmounted by four Ionic-style volutes. The façade of the gallery is covered with horizontal boards. A panel equivalent to about 15% of the width of the gallery is fixed in the center of its façade. The year of construction of this building, 1920, is indicated by raised numerals. A sign on the front edge of the roof covers 90% of its width. It reads "BROMPTOM PULP & PAPER CO. in capital letters.
